SQLException e

SQLException e

SQLException e

Is there a way to interpret exceptions?  For example, if I want an ORA-00001 to display a message?

    out.println("Constraint violation!");

RE: SQLException e

I would never attempt to interpret the meaning of an exception based on the message in that exception ... however, if you HAD to do it :


try {
   // stuff
} catch (SQLException sqle) {
   String message = sqle.getMessage();
   if (message.indexOf("ORA-00001") != -1) {
      out.println("constraint violation");
   } else {
       out.println("some other ORA error");

You cannot do what you posted because of two reasons :

1) Its not valid Java syntax (string equality is not done using '==', but with the 'equals()' method.
2) JDBC and exception handling is not tied to a specific database (such as Oracle).
